Opus Oils Jitterbug (please say it like Wham!) is a sassy floral with a rich sandalwood base.
Jitterbug is an indolic jasmine. It’s a sweet and heady white floral with jasmine and tart neroli. There’s a faint freshly opened pack of unsmoked ciggies and a honeysuckle breeze. The dry-down of Jitterbug is a rich, full-bodied sandalwood with traces of salty skin.
So how does Jitterbug differ from Etat Libre d’Orange Jasmin et Cigarette? Well, Jitterbug has more than just jasmine. The orange blossom/neroli is rather prevalent. I’d say the tobacco reads about the same in both but Jitterbug dries down to a rich sandalwood. So, what I’m saying is that the theme is rather similar but they are different. One could have both in their collection without being redundant.
Notes listed include four types of jasmine, sweet honeysuckle, lemon, orange blossom, ambergris, blond tobacco, and sandalwood. Launch date 2008. PERFUMER – Kedra Hart
Give this a try if you like perfumes like Etat Libre d’Orange Jasmin et Cigarettes, Sonoma Scent Studio Champagne de Bois, Aerin Ikat Jasmine, Diptyque Olene and/or 40 Notes Sampaguita Jasmine. Many people think of jasmine as feminine. But, I think that with the tobacco and sandalwood that this could be unisex (yes, leans more feminine because of the florals).
I find that in parfum form that this perfume wears rather closely but has above average longevity (because of the sandalwood).
Many sizes are available. The 1/2 oz parfum retails for $75 at Opus Oils.
Victoria’s Final EauPINION – Indolic white floral with unlit ciggie over a rich sandalwood. I think it’s awesome.
